Syfy has announced the renewal of one of its series, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog. The network has ordered 13 episodes for a fourth season of "Warehouse 13."
Season four of the comedy-drama fantasy series, which combines steampunk elements with a detective show, will air during 2012.
The renewal is not a surprise, the story says, as the show has boosted its ratings by 15% among viewers 18 to 49 years old during its current season. The first five episodes have averaged 3.2 million viewers, including DVR viewings.
Mark Stern, Syfy president of original content, said in announcing the renewal: “Under executive producer Jack Kenny’s leadership, this superlative team of writers, cast, and crew continue to turn out a series that only gets better and better with every episode. ‘Warehouse 13’ is deservedly the most popular series in our history and we’re delighted to renew it for a fourth season.”
